General changes

Please check configuration options. If you still use old PHP version, it’s time to ask your hosting to update. Soon PrestaBay will work only with PHP 5.4. So we strong recommend upgrading your server to using the newest version of PHP. If possible PHP 5.6.
In version 2.5 we only show a notification at Configuration block.

Selling Lists

We update an interface of Selling List page. Now the icon is clearer. There also available two new buttons ‘View Items Logs’ and ‘Products in Selling Lists’.

new_selling_list_page

We update the interface of Selling List edit. Now it more interactive. You don’t need to go special page to perform ebay action. All operations with item conducted on the same page. List fee, warnings and errors display as popup notice.

New_Selling_List

If you don’t like this new functionality, you can switch to an old version. To do this please open Catalog->Ebay->Configuration->Variables, set “1” for variable INVEBAY_NEW_SELLING_DEACTIVATE.

Synchronization Full revise marked items

During regular synchronization, PrestaBay module performs only QTY and Price revise. If you need full revise for the item, it’s only possible to throw module interface.
Now we add the possibility to indicate items that need to be fully revised. This is ‘Advanced’ feature available throw direct DB edit.

Ebay retail price (discount)

With this upgrade we provide possibility specify discount for your ebay items.

price_discout

The module will transfer discount to ebay only if you specify percentage more that 0. PrestaShop product discount ignored and does use when sending the item to ebay.
Please notice that field used to indicate discount to original price send to ebay.
Example: your ebay price without discount is 200€ and discount percentage is 10%. Then the customer can purchase your product for 180€, product price before discount is 200€.
